Stepping into the world that is Catrin Welz-Stein is akin to stepping through a portal into alternate dimension, another time, long ago lost to us.
By harnessing time worn illustrations and photographs, stripping them down and meshing the pieces miraculously together as one, Catrin Welz-Stein creates breathtakingly surrealistic digital artworks of folklore and fantasy, myths and legends, time warps and daydreams that will have you believe in the impossible.
German born graphic designer Catrin Welz-Stein (b.1972) always knew working in the arts was her destiny as she always had a talent for drawing and creativity, being “born with a pencil in [her] hand.”
Catrin graduated from Graphic Design in Darmstadt, Germany and continued on to work for alternate advertising agencies in Germany, USA, Switzerland, Malaysia and South Korea.
Catrin had decided to resign from advertising to become a fulltime mother and in doing so her inspiration was re-awakened by rediscovering a world of fantasy and fairytales with her children. And so in 2009, Catrin started to create her own digital images, collating timeworn illustrations and photographs inspired by fantasy, children stories, medieval, jugendstil, folklore and surrealism. Shortly after, with the power of social media, Catrin Welz-Stein’s artwork became a worldwide sensation, and her sky… it has no limits.
Take a deep breath and inhale the magic that is the work of Catrin Welz-Stein.
She is Art. She is Catrin Welz-Stein.
She is Art.
Be Bold. Be Sexy. Be Fierce.
